    Hi Belim,

    I want to say that you do a great job with your
    softwares and if you are interested I have updated the french
    localization for the latest version of CloneApp.
    the string "mnuLocalizationImport=" in Hamburger menu didn't work with
    any localization (German locale too) but only in english so is it
    possible to correct this bug !
    Is it possible too in a next release to support Unicode UTF-8 for some french lettering and other locales !

    Thank you !

    Hello Greenwild,

    thank you very much for your kind words and support :)
    I've updated and replaced the old localization file with your version.
    Here is the link

    I've tested the String "mnuLocalizationImport=" and it does function.
    But there is also a second "mnuLocalizationRemove" String for removing the localization file, if its already imported. Did you mean this one?

    Unfortunately, i can't bring unicode support currently. This would mean extensive modifications of some used controlls and i dont' have the resources for it.

    Best regards,

    Hi, Belim.

    Thank you for helping me to realize that Gain amount was a link to click.  I had not noticed that.

    I do think it would be better if the amount of storage space for each item was listed next to the item.  For example:

    [ ]  Windows Update Cleanup (1.13 GB)
    [ ] Temporary Internet Files (111.3 MB)
    [ ] Thumbnails (342.1 MB)

    Or maybe it is best to list the number of files too:

    [ ]  Windows Update Cleanup (653 files, 1.13 GB)
    [ ] Temporary Internet Files (191 files, 111.3 MB)
    [ ] Thumbnails (40 files, 342.1 MB)

    The Preview window works okay, but I don't think it as easy for the user because you do have to look for each item in the Preview or go back to the left side (listing with checkboxes) and check the items you decide to "cleanup".  This is an inconvenience for me because I usually use the storage amount estimate to aid in deciding what I am going to cleanup.  It doesn't really matter if I am going to clean certain items without concern for the storage space amount that will be gained.  I hope that makes sense.

    Currently, there are missing items in the Preview.  Notice in my screenshot that Previous Windows Installation(s), DNS Cache, Print Queue, and other items are not listed in the Preview window.  Everything on the left side (with checkboxes) should be listed in the Preview.  If you cannot calculate the amount of storage space to be freed/gained, then you should say "Preview was skipped for performance reasons" or something.

    Another problem with this current implementation is the Preview does not show any "Gain" estimate for "+ more" items (Google Chrome Cache, Microsoft Edge Cache, etc.)  It would be good to know how much storage space these items are using and one might then decide to go ahead and "cleanup" some of these.

    Thank you very much for all of your work and time on Cleanmgr+.  Please do not let my constructive criticism discourage you.  I simply want Cleanmgr+ to be the best for me and everyone else and I want to use it.  I will gladly donate some money as well, especially once the program is a bit more polished.

    Have a great remaining weekend.

    Sincere blessings,

    Hello again,

    I'll be glad to recieve also criticism, because that makes my work exciting and interesting again and again :) I can't put the "space to gain" next the individual Item sets in the "Disk Cleanup" list, because they will not fit into it. The entries are already too long and I had to cut back some of them, i.e. "System Archived Windows Err... (Error Reporting)"
    Maybe I'll look at the problem with the next versions again. This is a question of usability, UX and the UI in general. Where should I focus now. I found the current solution the right compromise. I improved the "space to gain" function a little bit with the last build 161 and introduced tabs in the listings

    [ ] Windows Update Cleanup | 10 files (1.13 GB)

    Your second request regarding not showing the space we'll "gain" for the items in the "+more" tab has again something to do with usibility. The calculation process of each item would significantly slow down the startup process of Cleanmgr+. These are individual Items, every advanced user can work with. It's simlar to the advanced cleanup rules provided by the winapp2.ini for "Crap" Cleaner. These brought it to its knees, when starting and anlyzing. First and foremost I just wanted a simple and lightweight Disk Cleanup replica.
    I have to look at the future versions, how I handle this and how much I'm still working on this function. This shows everything with the time and how the application arrives at the mass.

    I hope you are still using Cleanmgr+ and can recommend it.

    Best wishes from Germany

    Thank you, Belim, for the updates to Cleanmgr+.  It continues to get better.

    As I have reported before a couple of weeks ago, there is one BIG missing feature/aspect to me compared to Microsoft Disk Cleanup (Cleanmgr) and that is the lack of an estimate of the storage space that EACH ITEM (that could be cleaned) is using and, therefore, the storage space that would be freed up if an item was selected and cleaned.

    You added a total amount of storage space that is potentially free (gained) after cleaning, but Cleanmgr+ still does not provide the amount of storage space that each item accounts for.

    When I use Microsoft Disk Cleanup, I look at #1) how much storage space each item is using and #2) what each item is to decide on which items I am going to select and have cleaned.  I do not necessarily worry about items that I am unsure about, especially if little storage space will be freed (gained) from cleaning those items.  See the example picture below.

    With Cleanmgr+ currently, I have no idea how much storage space each item is currently using and which ones I really want to focus on.  I need and want that information to decide which items I want to clean, or at least which ones are more important to me.  I cannot use Cleanmgr+ in its current form.

    thanks for your comment. I've included already in the rc (after your comment) an option to show an overview about the used space of each Item in the Disk Cleanup data set.

    You have just to click on the link space to "gain". Please take a look into the screenshot
    I hope I did not hide this function too much. Did not you know this possibility yet?

    Have a great day

    Ist es beabsichtigt, dass beim Löschen der "Windows Downlads" auch der gesamte Ordner gelöscht wird. Dies ist nach meiner Meinung ein Fehler, da nur der Inhalt des Ordners gelöscht werden sollte!

    danke für die Info. Dies sollte in der Tat so nicht sein. Im Script fehlt noch der entscheidende Zusatz "\*.*", welcher nur die Dateien löscht und nicht den Ordner selbst. Mit der nächsten Build werde ich das Script und auch die Funktionen dahinter noch etwas optimieren und auch den Warn-Hinweis bei "sensiblen" Ordnern wie dem Download-Verzeichnis etwas hervorheben (aufpoppen einer MessageBox o.ä.).

    Danke und Gruß

    Just installed the latest build but I was wondering if you could let me know which item is actually clearing my quick access additional folders please?
    Many thanks for a really great program.

    Hi Lucas,

    I'm glad you're enjoying it :)
    Just uncheck the "Recent Documents" option if you mean this Windows feature

    You can now launch File Explorer to check if Quick Access’s history is untouched.

    Ran the new MS Cumlative Update today. Successfully updated to Build 17763.316. Than I ran Cleanmgr + V0.8. It stated that I had 2GB of space used due updated files. It ran successfully.??? I than ran Storage Sense and it showed I had 2GB of data used for updating purposes. I thought Cleanmgr+ would cleanup the update files and Storage Sense would show 0GB update file size. Bye the way, the same action took place on 4 machines all running W10 Pro upgrading to Build 17763.316.

    i think the Windows Update files clean-up with Cleanmgr and/or Storage sense includes also the clean-up/compression of Windows Component Store (WinSxS folder). I will add this feature in the upcoming final of Cleanmgr+ as a separate option. Btw, did you run it as Administrator?
